    I can't believe some of our left wing friends can defend Reid on this...........This should be a non partisan issue with all of us senior citizens on the same side.............His words are defenseless.

    Well I agree in the case of some of the worst hacks.

    Quite So.

    But there was a time, particularly around 2003, when the US invaded Iraq, I remember distinctly many people who disagreed with the invasion were accused of hating the troops. When most of the people of course supported the troops always, just didn't agree with the mission.

    Well when you have left wingers burning flags and burning troops in effigy at their rallys what do you expect?

    I can tell you I went to support the troops rallys where nothing like that happened. You can't have it both ways my left wing friend.

    What timing...in the VFW we take care of widows of deceased members...by fixing things around their house...taking them where they need to go...doctors etc and picking them up if they dont drive and bringing them to the post to socialize and have some fun...anyway...I went and picked up one of the ladies a few days ago..and were sitting at a table talking and she told me the hightlight of her day was going to the mailbx and reading the junk mail and the newspaper.

    Re: Harry Reid: ‘Seniors Love to Get Junk Mail…Only Way of Communicating or Feeling L

    There is a BIG difference between supporting a war and supporting our Troops. The radical right forgets that when it is convenient.

    If Senator Reid is the standard by which we frog march Congress persons then I believe a whole swath of the so-called 'conservative' side of the aisle would look good hopping right behind him!

    The Post Office needs to be cut lose to find it's own niche. Blaming Congress for their problems is fun I suppose but the real problem is generational. Most Americans no longer use 'snail mail' with pay online options. I pay my credit cards off by snail mail but everything else gets done online. I see no problem with reducing the number of days and closing some of the middle of nowhere branch offices.

    Sen Reid supports Unions. Of course he supports the post office. That the birthers, 'conservatives', and harp on any fault crowd is rolling on this like a stizu does poop is not surprising.

    Not trying to be a jerk, but that's not a good enough reason to continue the current mail system, at it's current cost.
    Maybe this lady should be taught to use a pc and find forums for retired people or something like that.

    There are other options.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
